Next up on our Cider Fest extravaganza: Apple Ginger from Angry Orchard.  I’ve been wanting to give this one a spin for a while now, and I’m glad I did.  The ginger in this one doesn’t over power, if anything, it tames down the sweet, warms up the flavor a bit, and gives it an over all spice vibe.  I was hoping for a bit more ginger, but this really works.  Shane doesn’t really like the ginger, but was wanting more so, we were all confused. Ryan summed this one up by comparing it to a boozey 7-UP Gold from back in the day.  That guy is a genius.

Ratings:
Me 7.0
Shane 7.5
Ryan 8.0
Squish 6.75

Everyone was happier with this offering than the first one, and the ratings showed it.  I think the warmth of the ginger helps this out a lot.  Although, Ryan points out that because of the spiciness, it feels more like a Fall drink than a Summer refresher, but I wouldn’t pass this up.
